I want to run Starhub go and it will not run on rooted device. Donít want to pay $199 for Starhub overpriced android tv box.
Does Starhub have a plan that you can sign up without buying their box?

Any specification on the box ?
Would SH be tracking on what you install inside the box ?
Any sd slot for memory expansion ?
No and playstore is available. I haven't tried side loading any APKs yet but there's no need for me to do it.

There should be a sticky post that say don't buy any TV box that offer free streams.

Don't be so dumb to fall for sellers that manually install apps you can download from the internet yourself for free.

Especially all those not legal streaming apps. I literally googled the name of the app one of the promoter using and downloaded the APK on my phone. Lo and behold it works just like the TV box demo.

Unless you are too stupid to install apps on a android phone /TV box then go ahead and get robbed by buying those TV boxes.
Agree but there are plenty of folks out there that are ignorant. The most funny came from a co-worker. She was boasting about how good her box is recently and saying how stupid people are by not getting one .

I decided not to educate people like that and just let them learn the hard way.

I thought those streaming boxes are somehow downloading contents from some server in China and they have authentication and we cannot do it on our own?

Why does sideloading APKs on the TV box sound like hacker stuff to most people?

To me it sounds as stupid as asking where to download the app on Windows. Ps you google/bing it and download the .exe file. If you can manage that surely you can manage installing apps on your TV box.

All android phones in China come without Google play and the only way to install apps is to download the APK.

You guys must be pampered by the Google play store.

That the case with Xiaomi but they got so much lawsuit incoming that they drop the idea.

I doubt the no name brands can pull such a service off for an extended period of time. Hosting media cost $$ that's why netflix cost $ and YouTube is flooded with ads.

As a matter of fact Starhub Go App may not be applicable on Android and Apple TV box.

Any reason why? I assume it can be done since it works on android phone.

I have a rooted phone and the app runs without any issue. Can't test further as I don't have a starhub subscription

Please refer to reply by Starhub CSO > You will not be able to download the StarHub GO app on Andriod TV.

Beside this there are do have comments on Apple TV box unable to download Starhub Go App.

And within the "What is Starhub Go" support page on What devices can I use to stream StarHub Go?

Listed devices are all mobile handsets.

Not all Apps can be available in some handsets as stated not compatible.

You can watch starhub go if you have an android smart TV.

Just run starhubgo on the andriod phone and chromecast the video to the TV.

If your TV is not using android TV OS, you can either buy a TV box with android TV OS, e.g mibox international version. It is only $70+, much cheaper than the box from starhub.

You can also try to run the app on pure android OS TV box (not rooted), it may work too.
